It’s time for another busy box idea, and I’m so excited about this one! It’s all about measuring, and it’s got the most adorable fall pictures for your kiddos to measure! This is a new addition to my busy box repertoire, and I can’t wait to hear what you think about it!

I give quite a bit of explanation in that post!)

Before we get started, we need to make sure you’ve got everything you need! Here’s a short list of what you’ll need to prep this activity:

Now that you’ve got all of your supplies, we’re ready to get started!

Or, once your kiddos are ready to move away from using objects as their measuring tool, you can teach them to use  a ruler that has nonstandard units of measure on it.
